Can you put a paypal or credit card payment option, then once paid, could it automatically redirect the buyer to a page where the purchased material could be printed by the buyer? Example: I sell flow charts on how to do things, once a person pays they get redirected to that page and can print it out.

Hello Ray,

You can use PayPal for this. Here is a link on the PayPal site showing you how with a good explanation.

Hi Ray,
It's also a good thing to place a PayPal redirect back to a custom page on your site telling your client the process for downloading etc. It's a also a very personable way to entice them to explore your site further rather than either finishing up on the PayPal site or on the product link that they have just purchased.

That is also great input. The problem is that I'm still pretty clumbsy at this stuff and I need a lot more practice/experience. Thanks

Take your time.

For me if I can identify a need clearly then the searching for a solution generally becomes easier.

It is good to understand how HTML and CSS work. You don't have to remember the syntax etc but rather to understand the process itself. With that understanding and no pressure to remember detail, it really does become easier as your experience builds.
